Roxby’s Healthcare Story

Roxby became involved with healthcare specifically to meet the demand for quality Covid-19 medical related services throughout the rural Ohio River Valley.  

When the COVID-19 Pandemic hit the US in early 2020, Roxby’s leadership was attending a wedding and was potentially exposed to the Coronavirus. While quarantined they sought a way to help protect the local community and healthcare workers.  

As the shortage in personal protective equipment grew, Roxby assembled a dedicated team including scientists, healthcare, engineering and construction professionals. 

The team used their collective expertise to create the Zoe-Ann Decontamination System to decontaminate N95 respirators and was issued an Emergency Use Authorization by the Federal Drug Administration. Shortly thereafter, Roxby had an opportunity to fill the need for quality Covid-19 testing and Roxby Labs was launched.

Roxby Labs was established in the city of Wheeling soon after the Covid-19 pandemic began in March 2020. As the spread expanded, Roxby President Jeffrey Morris and his family were not only exposed to the coronavirus, but family and friends across the country were being impacted, too. Roxby Labs was born from this concern as an effort to protect health care workers and members of the local community.

When the shortage in personal protective equipment grew, Roxby assembled a dedicated team including scientists, healthcare, engineering and construction professionals to create the Zoe-Ann Decontamination System to decontaminate N95 respirators. This system was named in honor of Roxby President Jeffrey Morris’ mother Zoe and grandmother Ann, both of whom were career nurses in West Virginia.

The operation was issued an Emergency Use Authorization by the Federal Drug Administration, and shortly thereafter, Roxby had an opportunity to fill the need for quality Covid-19 testing. In May 2021, Roxby Labs opened the only CLIA certified high-complexity reference laboratory performing COVID PCR testing in the Northern Panhandle.

As Lead Consulting Scientist, Roxby Labs Founder Dr. Natasha Smith designed and implemented the efficacy testing for the Zoe-Ann Decontamination System & began to build Roxby’s diagnostic testing lab. Dr. Smith also served as the Study Director for the FDA Real-World Studies on the utilization of re-used N95 respirators decontaminated using hydrogen peroxide vapor decontamination systems in partnership with Bioquell as part of both Roxby & Bioquells Emergency Use Authorizations.
